Highkin Always Delivers

Whether you’re reading his newsletter or listening to this pod, Sean Highkin always delivers. I like his pod because it covers a lot of the day-to-day topics, as well as the bigger picture, but it’s not just game analysis that is quickly outdated. My only complaint is that having the whole episode and three shorter segments from the episode is pretty annoying. It makes me listen to the entire pod, then mark the individual segments as played so that everything will still play in order. A tiny thing, I know, but it’s the only podcast I know of that does this, and it feels unnecessary—otherwise, 5 stars. Highly recommend. Sean is one of the better-beat reporters in Rip City.

Good content, but…

Now I remember why I stopped listening to this podcast several months ago. The constant changes in voice volumes is so annoying. From nearly a whisper, comes this loud screeching yell over the mic…
For me, it’s a game changer. I have to unfollow for now, but I’ll check again in a few months to see if the moderator has taken voice control lessons! But this is not listenable!

Excellent, no surprise

Highkin delivers thoughtful and witty coverage of the Trail Blazers on his latest podcast. No surprise for a plugged-in local voice that offers a contemplative approach to his reporting. Great stuff.
